CES: Intel’s touch desktop

Despite the large amounts of cash obviously spent by the main exhibitors on their stands here at CES, there aren’t many doing much design-wise. But a touch-screen at the Intel stand has been drawing crowds.

Despite the large amounts of cash obviously spent by the main exhibitors on their stands here at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, there aren’t many doing much design-wise. But a touch-screen wall at the Intel stand has been drawing crowds.

UPDATE: Video below (thanks Chris in the comments for the link)

The World Live was created by Foghorn Creative in San Francisco. It comes out of internal research at Intel regarding what a future desktop might look like. There are 500 cubes. Each cube is a separate piece of data – either drawn from something on the hard drive or flive feeds from the net. The user configures the desktop however they like – they could choose to have everything coming from one site, for example, or be search results.

Touch each cube to bring up the information within. Recently pulled up items appear at the top of the screen.

I’ll update this with video soon (hopefully)…
